Hi all,

I work for a school system, and in some of our labs we use mandatory profiles.  These are great, most of the time.  Today I was creating a new one.  I start out by logging into a domain acount with admin rights, with no profile.  I create all my settings and get rid of nuisance screens.  I then use the "copy to" function of profile mgr in windows to send my new profile up to a network share.  Delete local copy of profile, attach the network copy to the domain account and test.  Everything works great!  Good.  Now I copy this profile to another folder, which is the limited user account, and rename the ntuser.dat to

I log in under this account, and all my settings are there, it's beautiful... until I open the website the students need to use.  It requires a cookie, and the cookie is in the Cookies folder and gets copied down.  The permissions are correct, it would seem.  It just doesn't recognize the cookie is there.  If anyone can decipher what I just wrote out, my question is:  "How can I make this profile read the cookie?"  It's not so much a security issue as it is a nuisance.  I searched the knowledge base and couldn't find much regarding this... most people want to keep all cookies as far away as possible.
